Our New Work Debuts at the Architectural Digest Show 2014

 New Shapes and Designs in Wall Art, and New Vessels!

We are excited to be exhibiting at the  Architectural Digest Home Design Show, March 20-34 in New York City.  As in past years, Natalie is exhibiting in the MADE section of the show (Booth M86), where hundreds of juried international and local artists and galleries showcase their limited edition and one-of-a-kind works.  This is a retail show where you can  purchase directly from the artist at the booth, or you can commission future work.  It's a great opportunity to see artists' new work.  This year we've got lots of new shapes and designs to show off. Natalie Blake exhibits at the Architectural digest show     Our studio's newest work includes what we're calling "architextural" tiles.  The designs on these undulating tiles were inspired by the natural elements of earth, water, air and fire.  The carved patterns accentuate the undulation in the tiles which seem to ripple. Natalie also created smooth, uncarved "ripple" tiles.  These smooth tiles would be a cost-effective way to cover a larger space as they are priced at about half of our carved tiles.  We're working to slump glass over uncarved, undulating tile to create a glass tile that can be incorporated into a ceramic mural. As with all our tile, these tiles are suitable for interior and exterior installations. handsculpted, sgraffito-carved, ceramic wall art tile by Natalie Blake handsculpted, ceramic wall art tile by Natalie Blake Studios     We're expanding our portfolio of shape tiles to include a new line of octagon tiles. Each octagon is made up of 8, individually-made and carved triangle tiles.  We can mount them on a backing to hang as one piece, or they can be individually grouted in as a backsplash detail.  The fun comes from mixing and matching designs and colors! ceramic wall art by Natalie Blake ceramic wall art by Natalie Blake     We've also been extending our line of round tiles to include "Gear" tiles.  While our designs are inspired by images of old gears that our designer friend sent us, they also reference the geometry of nature and remind us of micro-organisms.  We love the industrial look of them.   elliot and gears   And last, but not least, Natalie is debuting a new line of angular, geometric vessels: a new twist on a smooth form. handmade, ceramic vessels by Natalie Blake
